Mortal Engines (brilliant new trailer).

Another great-looking trailer for the steampunkish Mortal Engines movie, based on the fine book by Philip Reeve, and brought to life by Peter Jackson and the Weta Workshop crew.

Hundreds of years after civilisation was destroyed by a nuclear war, a mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar), emerges as the only one who can stop London — now a giant, predator city on wheels — from devouring everything in its path.

Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang (Jihae), a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.

If they ever make a film out of Stephen Hunt’s excellent Jackelian steampunk series, I’m sure it wouldn’t look a lot different from this!
